Book Review: As One Devil to Another



Richard Platt 
Tyndale House Publishers, 2012

As One Devil to Another is critically acclaimed for accomplishing the best diabolical correspondence since C.S. Lewis introduced the genre with The Screwtape Letters. In As One Devil to Another Slashreap trains his young protégé, Scardagger, to win over souls from Heaven just as Screwtape taught his nephew. The book aims to uncover the very real problems plaguing society today with total accuracy. Anyone who picks up this book will be trapped, in a good way.

Walter Hooper, the hands down leading C.S. Lewis expert, claims Richard Platt wrote As One Devil to Another in an exact styling of Lewis. According to Hooper, Platt’s book reads as if Lewis wrote it himself. I agree. Perhaps this is the fiction writing to something such as Nancy Pearcey’s Total Truth in the sense that it is sure to open the eyes of its readers in a way that will uncover all of the “plausible arguments” and “deceptive philosophies” alive today. Whatever his intentions may have been with this book, Platt has certainly succeeded at writing a captivating book that will quite possibly become an instant classic. I look forward to future books from this author.
